By the Pac-12 Conference
WALNUT CREEK, Calif. - The Pac-12 Conference office announced today the Pac-12 softball weekly honors for the week of April 22-28. ARIZONA STATE junior shortstop Cheyenne Coyle was named the Player of the Week. OREGON STATE's senior pitcher Tina Andreana was voted the Pitcher of the Week.
Coyle tallied two home runs and hit a team-best .714 batting average, 1.714 slugging percentage and had an .818 on-base percentage in the weekend sweep of then-No. 10 CALIFORNIA. In the first game, a 10-2 five-inning victory, Coyle went 2-for-3 with two homers and two runs scored. The Sun Devils continued the five-inning win trend in the second game of the series in an 11-0 win with Coyle going 1-for-1 with two RBI, two runs and two walks. The West Hills, Calif., native went 2-for-3 at the plate in the series finale with two runs scored, a walk and a double. She has a team-best 59 runs score, 17 home runs and an .809 slugging percentage on the season.
The senior Beaver pitcher was a big reason for Oregon State's first Pac-12 sweep of the season over then-No. 23 ARIZONA. Andreana earned two wins in two starts on the weekend. She pitched 15 innings and allowed just two runs. The Oakville, Ontario, native tallied just a 0.93 ERA on the weekend. Andreana pitched the first game of the series, earning a 2-1 win and battled the last game of the series in an eight-inning victory by the same score to earn the sweep for the Beavers. She struck out 10 hitters and matched Arizona pitching zero-for-zero to give the OSU offense a chance to battle for the win each game.
This is Coyle's second Player of the Week award, winning her first the week of Feb. 12 this season. It is the 78th honor for ASU all time. It is the first Pitcher of the Week honor for Andreana and the 35th honor for Oregon State.
